Library Project Update

MAGUU, Tanzania Tetea's library project has made excellent progress. The building is nearly finished and the furniture has been made. Some books have been acquired by our local partner through the Tanzania Library Services, while Tetea funds have been used to purchase $1,000 worth of Tanzanian textbooks, pertinent to local curriculum. Also, a librarian has been found and has just finished her three month training course in Dar es Salaam. Tetea has raised $3,850 of the $11,000 needed to furnish the library completely with solar power, toilets, more books, and finishing the building (ceilings and windows).
For more details, visit our library page.

Scholarship Project Update

This year we were able to find ten new eligible Form 1 scholars, all of whom have been sponsored. They are studying at London, Msamala, Ruvuma, Mikalanga, and Hagati Secondary Schools. In addition, five eligible Form 4 Students have been sponsored, pending their acceptance into Form 5 or other educational institutions. Tetea currently supports 34 students. Thanks again to our current sponsors. More information about our scholarship project is available on our website.

School Project Update

This summer Victoria, Brian, Michael, and Abraham were all back in Tanzania. While there, Victoria and Brian spoke with district officials in Namtumbo District (to the East of Songea Town) about the possibility of building a secondary school there. The officials were very receptive and showed us a 60 acre plot of land. While the official paperwork still needs to be completed, we feel that a huge first step towards realizing our vision of building and running a school near Songea has been accomplished. More information on our school project will be available on our website as things progress.
